Cary Wellness Center Reopens

Posted August 9, 1997

— The Rex Wellness Center is open for business again in Cary. The brand new center closed hours after it first opened due to a natural gas explosion nine days ago.

The blast burned two people and caused a ceiling to fall. Sherwood Sasser, a contract employee, remains in serious condition at the NC Jaycees Burn Center at UNC Hopsitals. Neil Byrd, the Wellness Center director, is listed in fair condition.
